TURNER CLASSIC MOVIES.
I didn't realize how much I missed it up here until Canada finally got with the program and added it.
What Turner Classic Movies does is show classic movies....Commercial free, all the time.
Pretty sweet, huh?
But it gets better.
In the 31 days leading up to the Academy Awards (March 5), TCM is running their annual "31 Days of Oscar" gala, where every single movie is an Oscar Nominated film.

I've just listed a few of the movies each day. (And highlighted the ones I won't forgive you for not seeing.) You will want to make time in your schedule for seeing as many as you can.
